I started using Yeti Coolers before they were "cool", have several thousand dollars worth. They'll never see another dime of my money, and I was about to buy another 120 qt.

I sent them a message stating my displeasure at this news. Like skinnerback, I have quite a bit invested in their products. What a shame.

Thier business model is pretty much silent...no brostaff, no sponsership, no nothing, and direct to consumer(-bucees) at the cheapest price they feel they can sell for.

Disappointing to hear on Yetiís part, they have done some great conservation work, unfortunately had to hunt public land with out a gun.

How many hunters use Yeti coolers to store game meat? What a bone head move on their part.

I've got two Yetis and two Pelican coolers. The Pelicans are better. And they make rifle cases also, so clearly they are pro gun.

I have a yeti tumbler from years back. Their coolers are not all that and now they are kicking hunters in the nuts knowing that the rich folks and sticker seekers will still buy their junk.

So Yeti stopped giving the NRA free stuff and the NRA wrote that article...

Piss on the NRA anyway, "jack booted thug" comment turned me off years ago. Turned off Bush as well.

No itís a sales agreement not free. Basically cut them off thier .org program which is basically wholesale pricing.

i just got off the phone with YETI. They are going to be releasing a statement about this later today. Could be tommorrow but said they hoped that it would be released before the end of the day today. What they did tell me was that this wasn't a political move at all. That they support the 2nd Amendment and the NRA just like they did in 2006 when they started. As their business has grown in the last 12 years they haven't changed how they handled their charitable business side of things since then and the business its self had grown like 200% the last 2 years. So what they are trying to do is rework that side of the business and turn it into more of a bulk pricing type of thing. (may be completely wrong with my understanding of their explanation) They did tell me that the NRA is more than welcome to sign on or continue the relationship or opt out of the new model. They said this happened a month ago and a lot of mis information started going around this weekend. So before you burn your YETI's then lets wait to hear what their statement says.

However if any of you decide you still need to burn your coolers i am in Need of a Tan Yeti Hopper2 and any size of tan Hard cooler haha!

I emailed Yet yesterday after reading about it on this forum. Always two sides. Below is their response.


We're writing in response to your recent email inquiry.

A few weeks ago, YETI notified the NRA Foundation, as well as a number of other organizations, that we were eliminating a group of outdated discounting programs. When we notified the NRA Foundation and the other organizations of this change, YETI explained that we were offering them an alternative customization program broadly available to consumers and organizations, including the NRA Foundation. These facts directly contradict the inaccurate statement the NRA-ILA distributed on April 20.

Further, the NRA-ILA stated in that same public communication that "[YETI has] declined to continue helping America's young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities." Nothing is further from the truth. YETI was founded more than 10 years ago with a passion for the outdoors, and over the course of our history we have actively and enthusiastically supported hunters, anglers and the broader outdoor community. We have been devoted to and will continue to directly support causes tied to our passion for the outdoors, including by working with many organizations that promote conservation and management of wildlife resources and habitat restoration. From our website to our film footage and from our social media posts to our ambassadors, YETI has always prominently featured hunters pursuing their passions. Moreover, YETI is unwavering in our belief in and commitment to the Constitution of the United States and its Second Amendment.

Thanks for reaching out to YETI.
